            The black dwarf was fine and the least of the shows issue. I had much bigger problem with her having no beard though.

              It’s heavily implied she grooms the facial hair, since they mention her mom having a beard, and you can see she has wild sideburns that she trims back. We also didn’t see other dwarf women about (or did we?) I think we’ll see full on bearded dwarf women going forward, but her not having one was a character choice. They actually designed her with facial hair but liked her look without it better.

            I actually loved that show, black dwarves and all. Certainly better than the Hobbit trilogy, and it has promise.

      Once I stopped getting text boxes for my conversations with NPCs and it went Mass Effect style they dicked up Fallout.

          Yeah but you have the list of replies down the bottom, same as 3 and NV. Including the ones you cant use because you dont meet the requirements.

          Im an old man, 1, 2, Tactics… I was there man.

            Oh, I get you, it’s the “you don’t get to see the responses” thing in 4.

              Or Yes and No on the replies tree but the character says far more than that.

              I also genuinely didnt like the fact my character had a voice, it felt more like “My character” when I was reading it. That was one of the unique things that fallout had that nobody else did anymore.

              It turned me off the series. I gave up on 4 half way in and didnt touch 76.

                I was fine with the voice – I’m fine with a voiced PC or unvoiced – but found the voicing frustrating from a mod standpoint. Basically, anything in the base game had the main character voiced. Any content from a mod didn’t (well, now there’s AI-driven voice synth, but that wasn’t around for most of the time people were modding, and it’s still not as good as a human voice actor). Felt kind of disruptive to have it running some of the time but not other times if you used mods.

                You can make a mod that avoids using a given NPC in the main game because you don’t have their voice actor, but you can’t really do that for the main character – they’re always going to be half of the conversation.

                I’m glad that they dropped voicing the main character in Starfield for that reason.

      Sounds like you want them to. I will never understand shitting on a product before it’s even out. Not to mention fallout isn’t Shakespeare, it’s not some masterful narrative that nobody could possibly get right.

        Using a thing called knowledge. Might be a new fangled phrase for you. Looking at past projects that multinational companies have destroyed.

        Dragonball z, avatar, a series of unfortunate events. Cowboy bebop. The list is endless. Also didn’t Amazon do fallout 76 ? Which to my understanding is pretty much unplayable ?

        So yeah track record and previous

          I can name a dozen incredible shows that corporations have pulled off too, it’s all a crap shoot.

            True, I suppose it does go both ways. But can you name game adaptions that have gone well from conglomerates that are money driven cesspools ? Run for profit by a lex Luther esk villain ? Who hoards money like a god damn dragon ?

              There isn’t a whole lot by way of volunteer game development. I’ve done some, but video games are one area where commercial production has enormously outpaced volunteer work on software.

          You don’t know anything about this show beyond its existence and intended release date. The most you’re doing is making assumptions based on other failures unrelated to this project. Dunno where you heard about 76 having anything to do with Amazon, that’s a Bethesda game. And it’s very much playable now after things were ironed out.

            Yeah it’s called speculation. Kinda what we do all day eryday. I know Amazons track record and I know previous games that have been adapted. With that information I can make an estimation. 9/10 it’s probably wrong. Why does it matter ? Kool fanks for info.
